and Smiths or VDO (if manual)?
To me it doesn't matter, I guess it's the same connector on the speedo cable?
But it's originally a VDO, I don't want to spend £150 to get a VDO tho...

Re: W58 transmission specialists in the UK

I was using AMSOIL 75/90 fully synthetic GL5 3rd 4th and 5th making loud rattle noises when decelerating or backing off throttle.
